When you look at Sofia Vergara, do you ever think of two bald guys with their heads pressed up against each other?

Of course you do. She’s in consideration for a role in the new Three Stooges movie, and head-bonking Larry and Curly have already been cast. Duh. (What did you think we meant?)

The Modern Family actress doesn’t have a solid deal, according to sources close to the production, but she has attracted the interest of director-writers Peter and Bobby Farrelly. The brothers didn’t have any comment, but the role she’s in consideration for is a vixen who lures the knuckleheaded brothers into a potential murder-for-hire scheme. If anyone dies from severe slapping and eye-gouging, Moe, Larry and Curly have a lot of explaining to do.

Will & Grace‘s Sean Hayes has just been cast as Larry, with $#*! My Dad Says actor Will Sasso in the Curly role. Moe hasn’t yet been cast, but expect that news soon as the Farrelly’s aim to start shooting this month.

    Yes, yes and yes! Perfect casting if the deal goes through.

      The only problem is…will they use subtitles for her scenes? I mean, she’s almost unintelligible in Modern Family, with that too-thick accent and the way she just “bends” the words.

        LOL Get ready to be called “racist” by the loonies. I agree with you. Gorgeous woman, but I can’t understand 80 % of what comes out of her mouth.

        As someone who has known about Sofia Vergara since her days at Univision, I can assure you that she exaggerates her accent on Modern Family. She still has a strong accent, but on Modern Family she is almost unbearable to watch. I recently watched a commercial she made for Bally’s Total Fitness during the 1990’s and she sounds nothing like her character – you can actually understand what she is saying. I understand that the producers may ask her to exaggerate her accent for comedic relief, but her character often comes off as a stereotypical latina charicature.

      How do we know that she’s not gonna play Moe? Hollywood loves to reimagine old concepts. If Miss Marple can be played by a an attractive 30-something American, why can’t Moe be played by an attractive 30-something woman?

  • Barack Palin

    She’s much too beautiful to play Nancy Pelosi; after all, aren’t the three stooges in the title Obama, Pelosi, and Reid?

      Post your right-wing idiocies on another site. And while you are on that site, try and name three good Republicans.

    • Kowalski

      This is off-topic. And about as funny as the Hangover 2 trailer.

      • John

        And justlike the Hangover 2 trailer, repetitive as heck and unoriginal…”

    • MTD

      Yea, God forbid you don’t agree with the liberal nonsense this site and its readers post on a daily basis! Shame on you! Oh boy, here comes Ken Tucker!! Hide your elephant pins!

  • Lola

    I’m kind of loving the title of this article. Thanks for the early morning chuckle.

  • Adam

    I thought this was going to be a biopic, not the “further adventures of the Three Stooges.”

  • bill o’

    George W would make a great stooge…natural idiot…superb Moe. Shave Newt & cast him as Curly.
    How about Huckabee as Larry?

    Review by Aspiring Golfer for Rating: I switched to Natural Golf a culpoe of years ago, with good results. However I was still slicing about one third of the shots off my driver. After watching Todd Graves’ video Troubles and Solutions I suspected that my grip was incorrect and knew that my wrists were not hinging properly. When I took the training club to the driving range my first shot went high, straight and long. I was able copy the hand position to my driver and removed the slice almost instantly.
